It is hard work to burn off weight via exercise. It is much easier to watch what your eating. It's bullshit that exercise is not an option.

But then I guess they dumb it down in case everyone will go off message and eat pies all day and think a ten minute walk on a Sunday will burn it off.

What they are trying to say is that you can't have a poor diet and expect to be able excercise the extra calories off. Good diet and excercise go hand in hand. Found out to my cost as this is what I used to do.

Does this mean when I have been walking to the chippy for my pudding, chips, peas and gravy instead of driving I am not having a 'free lunch' afterall? :cry:

Calories in, calories out. It's really not that hard, is it?

If I expend approximately 1000 extra calories on a longish bike ride and consume an extra 800 calories as a consequence, I'm gonna lose weight in the long term, am I not?

Or am I missing something?

I think you must be missing the fact that boring common sense headlines don't sell newspapers!

You are indeed missing something.

It is actually worth reading the article this time.
